    Haha he’s clearly stating that he carries guns and will kill you, not about some girl. I’m wondering if Topanga is some mythical place where dead people go.

    It was talking about a cult I forgot the name but he is basically telling you to watch who you leave with

    It definitely has always made me think of a cult and telling you to be careful who you get close with. The music video is also demonic which makes me think even more. A scary point of view.

      I wanna know the other point of view! And I would like to know anymore theories that you have on him in general or other songs/ music videos. No one else seems to think he’s demonically involved with anything. But I know it. So was juice unfortunately. I mean he was predicting his death to the T since Goodbye and Good Riddance. Is there another place we can talk? Like email or Instagram something!!!
